Roxy’s Favorite 50 Cent Beach Reads

Posted By Roxy On August 30, 2009 @ 8:05 pm In Entertainment, books | No Comments

[1] On a rainy Saturday at our beach house in Bay Head, I decided it was the perfect time for a rundown on Roxy’s recent beach reads, all of which I’ve picked up for 50 cents at the [2] Anchor & Palette Gallery in Bay Head, New Jersey. All proceeds go to the good work of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, on the corner of Bridge Avenue and West Lake Avenue in Bay Head, NJ.

The best, by far, is the one I just finished this morning: [3] False Memory, a thriller by Dean Koontz: a tale of madness, suspense, love, and terror from a startlin and true-life psychological condition so close to home it will stun even his most seasoned readers… autophobia — fear of oneself. As a huge fan of [4] haiku, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the evil psychiatrist who manipulates his patients with hypnotic haiku.

I also breezed through [5] “April & Oliver,” Tess Callahan’s debut as a novelist, as well as [6] Lisa Scottoline’s “Look Again.”

This morning, when I finished False Memory, I headed back to the Anchor & Palette to buy two more:  One Door Away from Heaven (another Dean Koontz), and The Secret History by Donna Tartt.
